Although sales have been great so far, we have not yet had a market day- until today! Christian and I headed over to Clemson University's Farmer's Market this morning after dropping Cameron off for school. The weather was absolutely gorgeous which made it a pleasure just to be outside. Christian was a very good boy, willing to "help" out in any way. Overall, our first market of the season was a success and we were even asked to come back and be part of the Earth Day festivities at Little John Coliseum (the big football stadium). Exciting!!

It's amazing how many hats a person must wear when trying to run a small business and a small household at the same time (which, usually my household runs me!). Today I was taking pictures of my products and making macaroni & cheese at the same time. Yesterday I was making soap and the beds. I feel very thankful that I can be home with my boys and still have outside interactions with my wholesalers and customers involved with my business. This week I dropped by a local restaurant that had expressed interest in carrying my soap in their place. There was a lady ordering at the counter who kept looking at me. At the same time we both said, "You look so familiar!" Then she shouts out, "You're the soaplady! I love your stuff!" It made me feel pretty good to be called the soaplady (oddly enough, it wasn't the first time), but even better to hear that she loved my soap and she went on & on about my lip balm. It never gets old to hear that somebody is enjoying the fruits of your labor. I'm going to post a few pics from today. My husband probably could have taken much better pics, but I am impetuous and can't wait! So there!
